The banjo came in sooner than I expected and in great shape.
I e-mailed deering and asked a question about sore fingertips from playing the banjo--I had had problems with the guitar--some have the strings so distant from the neck that one must push them quite hard to fret them and it was almost impossible to play it due to the extreme soreness of fingertips. I never received a reply from deering. I was disappointed and almost decided not to purchase from deering. It was very important to me
I was searching for a good entry banjo for my son. I had loads of questions. When I called, all my questions were answered thoroughly and patiently. I ordered online and the process was smooth. The system of updates being emailed was quite helpful. The banjo was well packaged and arrived in good condition. My son is excited to have it.
Fair pricing, excellent shipping and the banjo is perfect! Thank you!!! It's been a big hit this Christmas. Ellen
